confessions of a teenage doofus

So I am feeling better, my stomach is mostly back to normal and Mom gave us pumpkin for dinner which is supposed to help firm things up if you know what I mean!

The most exciting thing happened today, Mom got an email from someone named Casey who said that MY blog is featured on Animal!!! Can you believe that! I am at the very bottom as the featured blog. I know some of my blog pals are on that site too so I was very honored! If you don't know what it is, its the internet run by animals! GENIUS!

So Tanner confessed to all this stuff, right? Well he did not confess to being a Doofus but that is because it is totally obvious! If you were considering changing your mind because he makes you laugh so hard, I submit the following for your judgement.

Earlier Mom was slicing carrots for salads and treats for us when one went FLYING off the counter...

Tanner sure couldn't figure out where it went. GEE GUYS DO YOU SEE THE CARROT?! He walked around that (dirty) kitchen floor for 10 minutes before Mom finally pulled it off of him. Luckily I was in the TV room guarding the house otherwise I would have eaten it right off his back! I only beg in the kitchen when meat or cheese is involved.

So, my friends, a lot of you say how much you LOVE the Doofus, but could you seriously live with him and his specialness??

You have to keep one eye on the little doof at all times!!

Joey: You are doing a good job raising Tanner, doing all the things a big brother should....roughing him up a bit, making fun of him, keeping him from taking himself too seriously. But I think I'll pass on having him as a permanent room-mate, thanks. Unless you want Teka!

It's not fair that you have to move your head to keep an eye on Tanner but he can keep an eye on you while the other eye is looking in the other direction!

joey, i have to share this with you: there's a tv commercial for wide screen tv. a golfer hit the ball and the ball dropped in the bushes. everybody at the golf tournament was looking for the ball but couldn't find it and the tv viewers kept pointing it out coz the tv screen is so wide they could see where the ball located easily.

the carrot story of doofus reminded me the above commercial. LOL

Hey Joey...
Congrats on the Animal Internet thingy...that is so pawsome. I can't think of any doggie more deserving.

Oh, and I would have totally eaten that carrot off of Tanner's butt...and probably taken a bit too. Ok, just kidding about eating his butt!!!

Lots of Licks, Ruby

Well Joey. You should be glad that you have a Doofus at home. Imagine you are all alone at home, nobody to tease at, nobody for making fun of and nobody to bully....thats such a boring life like me...

Hey Joey,
Tanner isn't very fast with his reactions huh? I mean a carrot on his back and he didn't even notice? Unbelievable. Congrats on being featured on the Animal Internet.

I read what Boo said....I remember that advertisement too! I think it was for Sharp LCD TV or sumthing.

Carrot-back! So funny! It would be funnier if that didn't happen to me with some regularity.

And, yeah, I'd rather live with Joe. We've got enough doofuses around here. I could use some genius-company.

Oh... I know how awful a bad tummy is! We (me and Helios) had tummyache about 2 weeks ago and my M was feeding us with pumpkin and yoghurt to make our tummies better.

Gosh Tanner, was it really that hard to find that slice of carrot? Hmmm, this shows that your nose is not functioning that well huh!? Hehehehehe...

I'd live with you, Joe! I'm going to try pumpkin. My poops have been a little too pudding-like of late. Sorry for the detail.

WOW Joey, you just spoke my mind. I know EXACTLY what you mean. For those dogs who love STINKY, I would like to ask them - How would you like to live with a STINKY land shark??

I know you understand my pain Joey, and thanks for always been so supportive over the STINKY issue. You are a TRUE friend, I love you, no not that kind of love, but still love you know?

Love nibbles,

Truer words have never been spoken. You have to keep one eye on the Doof at all times. He is an accident waiting to happen. But...very amusing. Sorry about your luck, Joe. "The Ohio cousins"

OMG you are so right, I would probably kick his ass. Well, maybe not - he is kinda funny.

We're glad to hear that Joey is feeling better from his poopies. We hate it when we get really bad poops. Then the girl chases us to wipe our butts.

At first we thought the carrot was a lasar and that Joey had Tanner in his rifle sights. We're glad it was just food.

Congrats on your blog being featured.

haha i hope the doofus didn't spin circles trying to see why his behind smelled so good.

what about you, joey? won't hurt to spill a few secrets about yourself, your image is already very good!

glad that your poopies are better! how about some papaya to regrow those good bacteria (icks!) in your tummy? HM says they get all pulled out when your poopies start to run.

Joey, I understand your pain at having to live with a less capable brother. I suffer having to live with CC-man. From dropping his egg biscuit in his water, to pooping on Mom and me, he baffles us everyday with his lack of brain cells.

And yes, I think I love Tanner BECAUSE of his specailness.

Joe, I find it very helpful to grab my little brother by the neck and throw him around several times a day. Of course, my little brother is NOT a doofus ... so maybe if you grabbed Tanner by the neck and threw him around, your bro wouldn't be a doofus either!?!
Just a thought.

Poor Tanner, you just have to feel sorry for the poor doofus! If food falls anywhere around me, I am all over it!!
